We aren’t the only ones who think that Drinking Boston: A History of the City and Its Spirits makes the perfect holiday gift: the hit book by Stephanie Schorow was featured on WCVB’s Chronicle as part of the show’s holiday gift guide!

Philip Saul, owner of one of our favorite local shops, SAULT New England, selected Drinking Boston as one of his top presents to give this season when Chronicle producers interviewed him for their Holiday Shopping Guide episode. We know SAULT is chock-full of amazing items, so this is a huge honor.  Check it out here to see why Drinking Boston makes such a good present—and to see what other great gifts SAULT has on their shelves!

Drinking Boston introduces readers to the cast of characters who championed or vilified drinking and the places where they imbibed—legally and otherwise. Drinking Boston examines the city’s complicated relationship with alcohol, dating back to Revolutionary taverns and pre-Prohibition saloons, and brings readers to today’s neighborhood barrooms and the current cocktail renaissance that’s sweeping the nation.  The book is available for purchase at SAULT, the perfect place to buy gifts for the men in your life.
